Editorial Reviews

Dr. Joan Fassler
Excellent book . . . clear, effective, and practical. I think readers will benefit greatly from exposure to the kind of knowledge and sensitive guidance it offers.
New York State Psychologist
Here is one 'How-to . . .' book that lives up to its title. The writing is refreshingly clear, the comprehensive scope of topics is readily accessible, the substance is both professionally eclectic and scientifically sound, and the structure of presentation deserves special commendation for its logical clarity, practical value, and uncommon good sense.
Dr. Louise Bates Ames
This attractive and comprehensive book covers most of the common problems which concern parents. Its encyclopedic nature and the specific, practical advice it gives will make it helpful to many.
American Journal of Psychiatry - Richard W. Hudgens
Drs. Schaefer and Millman have produced a winner. . . . Without preaching, the volume emphasizes old-fashioned virtues of the intact family and living by principles of mutual respect and cooperation. At the same time, the authors recognize reality: many families split up; most kids will try drugs or alcohol; most teenagers will become sexually involved; stealing, lying, and cheating are in the world to stay. Schaefer and Millman do not throw up their hands in horror; they provide sensible approaches to difficult problems. Parents and, though them, children can benefit greatly from this work and will owe a debt of gratitude to the authors. Drs. Schaefer and Millman know an impressive amount about their subject and serve it up well. If you're a parent, or if you counsel parents, buy this book.
